Heavy hair fall. Is it onset of MPB

Hi, I am experiencing heavy hair fall for past 1 year. When it started it suddenly became quite heavy. But i noticed i am losing hair from my body as well. In the morning there are around 20 strands on my pillow and almost around 20-25 other on the bed which are my body hairs. While shampooing i loose around 40-50 strands from my head. So is it onset of MPB or something else. Is body hair loss also accompanied in baldness .
